Continental Portugal is a mere 567 kilometres, which allows you to travel from north to south in just a few hours. But why rush?
Throughout Portugal there are plenty of reasons to explore each nook and cranny and get lost on secondary roads where there is always a local restaurant with unforgettable food, a breathtaking landscape or a secular church where the village festivals still have the charm of another time…
Getting lost in Portugal is sometimes the best way to find ourselves and the simple pleasures of life…

Portuguese Culture & Traditions
Portugal's rich history and landscape is also present in the culture and traditions of each region. In the coastal villages, the call of the sea has shaped beliefs and the way people relate to geography. In the north and mountains, the freshness of the rivers and the green of the hills continue to influence the inhabitants' way of life. The Portuguese are very proud to share this heritage with the world!
